No, the people do not know what they are talking about. What they may be trying to reference is "Adverse Possession", you can look this up, but this is not applicable to your circumstances because you have just been a renter, paying rent. If you have a lease or rental agreement, you...Read more »

A Florida attorney could advise best, but your question remains open for three weeks. A basic doctrine of contract law that holds true nationwide is that the terms of a valid contract agreed upon by both sides will apply. But that is a general textbook principle. A Florida attorney who reviewed the...Read more »
It can be argued that you "assumed the risk" if you ate the raw meat after discovering it was raw. And you would have to prove, should it go to court, that the raw meat made you sick. Also, your damages might not be substantial enough to warrant the expense and inconvenience of a...Read more »

Claims were filed with the PO but then I was later told the seller did not insure their package so my PO cannot continue with a refund and I need to contact the seller. I do so and the seller refuses to... Read more »
GM states that Florida does not allow consumers to buy the lease directly from lender and have to go to the dealer who wants to charge 2k to 4k in fees for me to purchase my lease. Since my contract originated in New Jersey why am I being held in Florida regulations.
Sorry to hear about your ordeal. I assume you mean that you not only want to cancel the loan, you want to cancel the entire purchase transaction and return the car, as if the transaction never happened. Unfortunately, there is no way to do that unless there is some illegality - for example, if...Read more »
My business was being sued. The case had been going on for about 2 years. I was having financial issues and could not make payments to my attorney. He requested to withdraw and I granted it. I did not realize how hard it would be to find a new attorney and during my search me and my other two... Read more »
Bad situation, sorry to hear that. You should confirm whether the judgment is against the business only or against you individually as well. You may still be able to file a Motion to Set Aside DEFAULT Judgment, if it was entered by default, if you have excusable neglect and a meritorious defense....Read more »
It's hard to find a state where a ballistic knife isn't banned. In Florida, they're the only knife that is banned by name. My question is, what about a ballistic spike? If the protruding portion of the spring-based weapon doesn't have a sharp edge along the length, but instead... Read more »
There is an old saying in criminal defense: “You might beat the case, but you won’t beat the ride to jail.” Basically, while you may be right that a spike is not the same thing as a blade, a police officer may not agree with you and might arrest you anyways, and then you will have to fight...Read more »
I am a member of an HOA. We have a grill that we are required to pay $50. every month to use it or lose it. I never use it. Recently they stated on the statement: Beginning January 1st, 2022 we will be converting to auto pay. Payments will be automatically be charged to your card on file on... Read more »
I ordered kitchen cabinets online from a dealer in another state. The first delivery (of 2) was supposed to be delivered with prior notice to my contractor. The freight company just dropped the pallets in front of the garage where they stayed for 2 days in constant rain. Nobody was... Read more »
I believe this is a negotiation issue, not a legal one. I am not aware of any law that says that a car dealership can't require that. It is a free market, it is their dealership, they can generally state that they "require" you to buy a whole lot of things in order to buy a car from...Read more »
And your question would be can the store legally do that? Probably, but what you mean by "personal demographics" is unclear. If I were a customer at that store, I would probably not buy that item if your name was scribbled all over it.
Hello, my husband and I live in Florida and a company supposedly bought this debt from Home Depot and is now trying to garnish my husband's wages. My husband is the only source of income that we currently have, I am pregnant and lost my job due to Covid. We won't be able to afford our... Read more »
If they are trying to garnish your husband's wages, it appears that they have a judgment against him. If that is the case, you might want to send them proof of your financial difficulties; if you do so they might not apply for a writ of garnishment at this time.
No. "Truth in Lending" is a well-used financial phrase used to remind people that the government requires lenders to disclose all the interest, fees and other costs related to each lending transaction.
However, it does not apply to every kind of lender there is out there; for...Read more »
